Here are all the materials that I have used to teach my 1st-4th graders Dreams by Langston Hughes and Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost. I used these activities for about 2 months. Each session the students are instructed to read the poem of the month. they get 1 point for reading and 2 points for reciting without looking. When the students reach 20 points they get a prize. I have also including some reading comprehension, crafts, and writing activities in order to facilitate memorization and carryover. 

This activity is targeting a variety of speech and language goals including but not limited to: 

 

1. Precise production of target speech sounds (medial /l/, final -st, r-blends, l-bends, vocalic r) at the sentence level. 

2. Improving phonemic awareness by utilizing rhyme 

3. Improving reading and speaking fluency by utilizing rhyme and rhythm.

4. Increasing vocabulary 

5. Utilizing appropriate vocal volume 

6, Increasing the length and complexity of utterances

7. Improving receptive language skills through the use of figurative language-metaphor.

8.  Improving metalinguistic skills (ability to think about language)

9. Improve recall and other memory goals. 

10. Utilizing appropriate morphological endings 

 

In addition to improving verbal comprehension and expression, teaching poetry has several other benefits, including by not limited to: 

 

1. Develop self expression

2. Enhance empathetic thinking 

3. Improve mastery of language

4. Improve critical thinking 

5. Develops insightful thinking

I'm also keeping data of how many reads/repetitions each child requires in order to reach memorization.
